Am I the only one that feels that way? :roll:
No - I feel the same way too...
May be because of the 'heft'? :idea:
-> I noticed this on the Tokina ATX-Pro series as well - Metal construction and all that heavy optics (engraved marking and filled with paint too...). I never like polycarbonate lenses, especially after a while when they wear out and get loose. The metal lenses are smoother in operation, hold up better and IMO are worth any extra weight!
The hefty metal just 'feel' right (ditto with the camera bodies) :?
